I started my career back in 1977 while attending Antonelli’s School of Professional Photography. My passion was photographing rock concerts. Some of the rock bands I photographed included YES, KISS, Foreigner, STYX and many others from the 80’s and 90’s.At that time I was also working at Professional Color Processing Labs as a Dye Transfer technician making T.V. Guide Prints.Throughout the 80’s and 90’s I did photographic work for Stage lighting companies, Real Estate agencies and numerous book and magazine publications. By the late 90’s I started getting into computer graphics, 3D animation and video production.
Then in early 2001 I started to realize my dream of video production and editing. I started working on my own as an independent graphics designer and videographer and started filming local surfers. I then got serious about video editing & production. And after doing a one hour surfing movie of my friends, I presented it to some local video production companies and was given positive reviews about my work.
I then started filming local musicians and producing music videos. I went on to work with a local producer editing “Pay Per View” programs for In-Demand TV. I then freelanced as a cameraman on various projects that included Planet X TV and recieved some independent cameraman work from Markey’s Staging and Lighting Co. doing the London Symphony Orchestra and Sinbad at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach FL. By 2006 people began taking notice of my video work on Myspace and YouTube and I started getting work by word of mouth and referrals. It didn’t take long for people to see what I can do for their companies and talents to promote them and get them noticed.
I always strive to do better each time I start a new project. I work to make each new video bigger and better. I don’t believe in resumes, that’s old school. I let my work speak for itself. I never profess to be the best or even close. I always strive to get better at my craft. This website showcases my current work and services to potential clients. I hope you take the time to watch all of the videos that I have created, produced and edited for my clients, and to see the wide range of projects that I can do for you.
You can also find my work online at Myspace and You Tube under SEFX3D Films. If you feel that I can be of service to you, please contact me as I welcome the opportunity to expand, explore and exaggerate my potential in this genre.
